by Sarah Kane - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Directors' Cuts Season 2017
What happens when we lose love, possibly irrevocably? C finds herself at a crisis in her life. Trying to find hope and redemption, she sifts through fragments of memories, recounting trauma, conflict, loss, and pain, hearing echoes and reverberations of her thoughts and memories throughout her mind.
Set in an unidentified location, Crave follows the fall of the human mind in the midst of love, loss and need, which Sarah Kane explores in her most rhythmic, form defying musical text. We see four characters “A” “B” “C” and “M”, or perhaps four aspects of the human mind, who have been singly, tremendously traumatised by life. Will love come?
